I had a look on that Ceasar website, they do a 3.8m Inflatable that can take a 70HP

That would be a lot of fun! Sure I remember seeing that someone tried a 50hp on the 3.2m minicat, a 70ces doesn’t weight much more... that would definitely be exciting

Been having a read through this thread over the weekend - some really interesting and inspiring stuff - love the fact that you design your own stuff when necessary!

I've been thinking about hopping up my 50 Yamaha this year - I'll be sticking around!

Glad you're enjoying it!
A lot of parts you either can't get or just aren't good enough quality in my opinion, I'm working on a new exhaust for the Yamaha at the moment.
Looks like a cool wee boat that, must fly with a 50hp on it!

Picked up a couple of Tohatsu 50hp's before Christmas, got them both running but both making a lot of noise due to worn crankshaft bearings. Tore one of them down so far, sent the crank off to have new bearings put on, ended up getting 1 new conrod too. Gave the pistons a clean, new base gasket, a lick of paint. Removed the lighting coils too, should free up a bit of power. Finally gave it a service, new plugs and changed gear oil. Tore the other engine down yesterday it will get the same treatment.





Also got another zapcat, from the same guy who sold me the Tohatsus. Looked pretty rough when I got it but holds air fairly well, just needs one patch. Gave it a bit of a clean today, going to have a look at removing some of the old stickers soon. Definitely needs a new floor, came with the old one but the ply is totally worn and coming apart.
Was thinking of doing up one of the engines up in matte white with custom stickers, then I'd have an all white boat to go with my all black Ceasar

Saw your old yellow tiger stripe one the other day. In a very sorry state! All deflated and green with the nose cone hanging out with broken seems! And a tired looking engine hanging off the back...I think it’s ready for the skip

That boat was pretty tired when my mate owned it, I imagine it's nearing the end of its useful life now. Saw a photo of it Instagram about a year ago, looked like an old zapcat racing engine on the back. Do you know who owns it? Would buy it back if it was cheap enough!
